  • I would recommend this business

I really appreciate how thorough the vets are. I've brought 4 cats here so far, some with sad news, and each time my pet and I were given the best treatment. The vets are honest about price and what is best for your pet. I can't thank them enough for walking me through treatment and best options for my babies.

Great docs and staff. Had to put my kitty down and they were so kind. They actually have a special private room to use for this.

I love how each person who works at Stapleton Veterinary Hospital care about me and my dog. When my sweet Pepper was sick, Dr. Rieder took the time to explain it to me several times, since my grief made it difficult to take in. When it was her time to pass on, they helped her and helped us to be with her. Now that we have a new puppy, everyone takes the time to interact with our pup and to treat us well. We always get a check in call after the visit.

All of the staff here are so great with our dogs! The vets are all amazing and take great care of our dogs every time we bring them in. After every visit I receive a follow up call to see how the dogs are doing and I really appreciate that. I can almost always get the dogs in on the same day since the staff are so flexible. The vets are great at answering all questions and explaining things, I never feel rushed. I also like that costs are taken into consideration and the vets never recommend anything that is unnecessary. The techs are great as well and are so friendly with all of the animals that come in.

I have an anxious dog who struggles with vet appointments. Dr. Smith and the team at Stapleton Veterinary Hospital went out of their way to make my dog feel comfortable. They took extra time to play with him and give him treats, and they were extremely knowledgeable and patient. We are lucky to have this hospital in Stapleton!

My dog wasn't even a patient at Stapleton Vet, I had to bring him there after he passed. The staff was extremely caring and empathetic. I even received a card with wildflowers attached to plant in memory of Chess and a Rainbow Bridge poem with a print of his paw on the bottom. They went above and beyond, especially since they never saw Chess as a patient. Once I'm ready for another pet, I will definitely be returning!

Customer Testimonials

I have seen two vets here - Dr. Smith and Dr. Brindler. I really like them both! They are both great with my dog, who is scared of vets. They are very friendly and do a great dog explaining things. The people who work the front desk are also very nice and efficient. Glad I found this vet clinic for my dog!


Brought in two sick pups and Dr. Smith was AMAZING as well as the rest of the staff. I called them at 730am as a new patient and was scheduled for 930am. Highly recommend this clinic.


I have been bring my dog to Stapleton Veterinary hospital for 5 years. I took him in yesterday for an emergency appointment. We were seen by Dr. Brindle. I was extremely impressed with her interactions with our pup and her expertise. She was careful to recommend the tests and exams most pertinent to our pup's situation.


Really friendly and helpful staff. Erin Mills was really good with my shy kitty; she was thorough with the exam and explanations. I never felt hurried. I also love that they seem friendly to both dogs and cats. I never liked going into a vet office and there were only dog pictures on the wall so I appreciate that they had both. The facilities are clean and they are close to my house. I look forward to having a long relationship with them.
